Whistl, one of the UK’s leading logistics specialists in fulfillment, mail and parcels, has launched a fast-tracked service for small businesses that send over 40 items daily to the United States.
What you need to know: The service typically takes an average of 6.5 days from despatch to delivery, enabling UK-based SMEs to access the U.S. at a cost-effective price, typically unavailable to lower volume mailers.
By upgrading to this service, UK SMEs can now offer their American customers an enhanced delivery service with improved item visibility on its delivery journey, along with quicker delivery times.
What else is important: The launch of the USA-tracked service for SMEs is the latest initiative from Whistl International, following its approval by the UK Border Force and HMRC as a Customs Clearance Agent.
The company offers air, sea and road clearance for mail and parcels entering the UK from its International Gateway near Heathrow. Through one point of contact, Whistl offers its customers an end-to-end solution from export destination to final mile delivery.
What they said: “Launching this service enables Whistl to support UK SME’s ability to access the USA market through a faster cost-effective service giving their clients the choice to upgrade from untracked services for a better experience, whilst at the same time offering them an Express service helping to lower their shipping costs,” said Michael Boulton, Managing Director, Whistl International.
“At Whistl, we have always fought to open up the mail and parcel market and bring the benefits large volume mailers have enjoyed to those with smaller volumes, typically SMEs.”
Of note: The company also reiterated that its operations have been unaffected by the Royal Mail cyber-attack. Whistl’s international activities have continued, making the introduction of this new fast-tracked service perfect for UK SMEs looking for an alternate solution.
